Accessing Rideshare Apps (like Uber and Lyft) with a Flip Phone

By Affinity Cellular - 2020-01-10

It’s a new year, and we have exciting news to share for our flip phone users! We are often asked whether it’s possible to use rideshare apps with your flip phone. GoGo Grandparent makes it possible! GoGo allows individuals that don’t have access to a smartphone to utilize rideshare transportation apps, such as Lyft and Uber. 

We want to serve our many flip phone users in the best way possible. GoGo will allow any Affinity flip phone user the freedom to get around town with ease. Affinity smartphone users can continue to use the apps to connect with drivers, just like before.

What is a Rideshare App?
Uber and Lyft are two examples of rideshare apps. In many ways, rideshare is like a taxi. The main difference is that individuals use their own vehicles to transport others in their community. Smartphone apps allow people to “call” for a rideshare, automatically sharing the pickup location with the driver. Rideshare apps are becoming increasingly popular and are very convenient. 

How can I access rideshare services without a smartphone?
GoGo Grandparent serves as an intermediary. When you contact them, they are able to connect you with drivers in your area without you ever having to access the app.

With GoGo Grandparent, you can: 

  1. Request rides with Lyft and Uber from your Affinity Cellular flip phones
  2. Save up to 25% on the cost of a cab
  3. Request rides 24 hours a day, with no advance notice
  4. All requests are monitored by a team of 24/7 customer service representatives to watch over your rides
  5. Screen out cars that are too large or too small for your needs
  6. Match up with drivers that are comfortable with canes, groceries, walkers and ambulatory equipment

How it Works
Rideshare apps only work from smartphones, but with GoGo, anyone can access these transportation services!
